A Dental High-Genius once showed me a better way to use floss for the conventional purpose: Instead of wrapping the ends around your fingers, tie the two ends together to make a loop. Just pull the loop tight and floss. Rotate the loop to move to an unused part as you go to the next tooth...
(The knot is a bit tricky because floss is so slippery. Hold the two ends together, just as if your going to make a regular overhand knot, but first twist them around a few times before you pull the end through the opening, kind of like a noose...)
She called it "the flossing circle". Sounded like a small clicque... ;-)

Ooops, sorry, typo: That should have read:
(There's an "S" after the "D")...
